Cal a Vie wedding venue

A few lessons from today’s Tuscan wedding inspiration: 1) Italy can, in fact, be brought to California, 2) Food can be as pretty as flowers, and 3) Little cakes can be as impressive as big cakes. (Though you may already know that last one if you’ve seen our wedding cake gallery.) Tres Chic Affairs + Third Bloom + a whole slew of talents made each of those happen + more over at Cal-a-Vie Health Spa in Vista.

Thanks to Shane & Lauren Photography for sharing all the deets, big and small.

Molly of Tres Chic Affairs says, The best part of the day was during the ceremony within the chapel filled with candles when the late afternoon sun was shining right through the stained glass window and onto the bride and groom, giving them the most heavenly glow as they said I Do. So breathtaking.

An Italian inspired wedding is never complete without food as incredible as the flowers. Cal-a-Vie’s Curtis Cooke prepared a Crostini bar and Limoncello Thyme & Tuscan Pear cocktails. We’ll assume the whole spread was appropriately devoured!

For the tablescape we wanted everything to feel rich but organic. The plant-dyed table runner and arrangements filled with fresh fruit, berries and herbs perfectly complemented the antique brass and vintage glassware, and The wood burned menus with distressed gold leaf detailing were inspired by many of the weathered stone walls that are found within the streets of old Italian towns. We created an intimate and lush sweetheart table with a special treat for the bride and groom, a fresh berry pizzette, as a perfect start to a rustic feast. As if the gorgeous Italian marble inspired cake wasn’t enough…

On the surface this editorial may seem like just another way to show off a pretty dress (in this case, Jenny Packham) in a dreamy setting (say, a eucalyptus grove). But if you stop at each of Whiskers and Willow Photography‘s images, you see all the little ways that Sweet Emilia Jane + team incorporated the ethereal feeling of love—rather than huge gestures or displays (which we love too)—so the bride and the setting could be a manifestation of that force.

This. Type and Title sure knew how to translate their concept to paper. So moody and delicate and lovely.

This quote inspired the shoot… Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible—it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.—Barbara De Angelis

We wanted to incorporate other organic entities that are thought to hold energy and carry forces that may affect our behavior and our lives. These items represent the great power that love can have over each of us if we listen and let ourselves be moved by it. Cool concept, yeah?

Okay, yeah, showing off a Jenny Packham is never a bad thing either.

We were inspired by the force of love—an energy that we cannot see yet we can feel with every part of ourselves, an energy that can bring people and worlds together. We don’t necessarily know why we feel love or why it can create such an overwhelming feeling to be with another person but, nevertheless, we know it exists even without seeing or understanding it.

Beach wedding portrait

Guys. M + A’s Australian wedding is a dream. Megan described it as relaxed modern with a bit of glam, all fabulous themes that truly come to life when made coastal. That way it could be a fun party for their 90 guests + family coming all the way from Perth to the Byron Bay Lighthouse, but still elegant. Let’s dive into these Bird and Boy Photography pictures, shall we?

Bridesmaids bouquets

Megan saved $$$ by creating the bridesmaid bouquets + reception flowers. Estelle of The French Petal swooped in to take care of the bridal bouquet and garland. It turned out amazingly and ended up being one of their biggest savers.

The bride looks quite stunning next to her groom in in Grace Loves Lace ‘Hollie’, we think! Megan tells it, My dressmaker, who did some alterations on my dress, ended up taking out one of the tails and turned that into my veil. It miraculously flew off over the ocean during the blowing gale right as I took my place next to Aaron by the arbour.

Megan says, One of my favourite things of the whole day was being able to sit back and soak in the whole atmosphere of the reception while we sat together at our sweetheart table! It was so nice to sit with my new husband and watch all our loved ones eating, drinking and sharing in all the love!

Beach wedding portrait

Destination weddings are always such a treat, but with a bright, fun, and beachy Pinterest board like Chantel’s, we were quickly smitten with her + Eric’s Mexico wedding style. You can already see their vibe coming through just from laying eyes on this initial shot of her lace trumpet dress and his rad blue suit. Thanks to Taryn Baxter for providing all the photos we’re sharing.

On the venue, c/o Chantel… I initially spotted Villa Del Oso online and I had a gut feeling it was going to be IT, however, Eric was leaning towards a different venue. When Courtney of Sunset Soiree took us around to tour venues, Villa del Oso was our last stop. Once we both walked out onto the property, we were speechless. It was so beautiful and even impressed us even more in person than how it looked in pictures online. I actually had chills the moment I stepped onto the property and knew that Villa del Oso was where we were going to celebrate our marriage with our family and friends. Eric was in full agreement as well.

Don’t you love all the details Taryn captured? Their original photog was put on bed rest two weeks before the big day and immediately lined up Taryn to replace her. Not only did it all work out, they would have never found her if it weren’t for this last minute change.

Cheers to the happy couple!

Outdoor wedding tablescape

Birthdays are not something we take lightly here at the 100lc HQ. Every year is different, special, and so worth celebrating and we’re not just saying that because we love to see another bash on the calendar, promise. So when Harlin & Sparrow sent this intimate Sonoma dinner party our way saying it was for a milestone birthday, we had to pass it along. It goes without saying that we hope a lovely dinner like this will inspire a few soirees thrown with your closest pals in attendance.

Thanks to for Megan Clouse Photography allowing us all too peep the photos!

Brittany of Harlin & Sparrow explains, The guests were greeted with specially cocktails and incredible hors d’ oeuvres. After time spent socializing by the pool they were escorted to the back of the property in front of the barn where long farm tables were set for a formal dinner. We hung a chandelier over the middle of the farm tables with cafe lights hung across the tables as well, and the tablescape was carefully designed with our clients in mind.

One of their main goals was to add depth and dimension to the design and tablescape. Contrasting pieces and a range of textures brings everything together quite nicely, in our opinions.
